Parades are a lot of fun. Families travel long distances to watch the colorful ensemble of balloons, floats, marching bands, artistes, and cartoon icons. Famous celebrities also participate in the festivity. There is an atmosphere of excitement and merrymaking, while children and adults wave flags and cheer the people in the parade. Parades have long since become a part of the American Thanksgiving Day tradition. They are a commercial success, as retailers have understood that shopping is an integral part of any celebration.
